2019 - 2020
MACC is currently proposing to engage the services of a professional artist to create a mural that is artsy, welcoming and represents downtown Morrisville in a creative way.
Objective: To create a mural that is vibrant and creative. MACC believes that investing in our community and especially in public art shows a commitment to our citizens and our future. Art and culture supports community engagement, increases the potential for people to understand themselves and each other and changes how they see the world. Public art is an economic driver and this mural should reflect our strong, vibrant and welcoming downtown.
Location: The panels will be installed on the Portland Street side of the Green Dragon building.
Scope of the Project: The mural will consist of (3) 4’x8’ panels and represents downtown Morrisville in a creative way. MACC will provide (3) sheets of ½” MDO plywood for the panels. The stipend for this project is $2,500.00.
The artist must be a Vermont resident, preference will be given to Lamoille County residents and extra bonus points will be given to Morristown residents.
The artist will be responsible for creating a mural that will withstand the weather using exterior grade materials.
No direct label advertising or logos (product or company) are allowed.
No religious, political or social disrespect is permitted. This is a public display and therefore the finished product must be appropriate for all audiences.
MACC will install the panel(s).
